Benn has 59 catches for 862 yards and five touchdowns in his career, all in 37 games with the Bucs.
Benn is no stranger to injuries. Since joining the NFL in 2010 Benn has torn his left ACL, suffered a concussion, sprained his right MCL and hurt a shoulder.
He was facing an uphill battle to start in the first place. The Eagles look as if DeSean Jackson, Russell Shepard and Riley Cooper are in the mix to start at receiver.
Coach Chip Kelly told CSNPhilly.com that Benn stayed mentally sharp during his absence.
“I was pleasantly surprised,” Kelly said. “You expect some rust, to be honest with you. I thought he was really good from a mental standpoint.
“He missed some insertion time because, obviously, he was out. We can't stop insertion just because one guy is out. We called things today he had never run in practice before that he really picked up.”
